FTT #77

Yesterday, Teresa the five-year-old went on a brief kick of identifying eye colors.  “My eyes are brown!” she announced, and then, looking at me, “Your eyes are blue!”

Tina the three-year-old could not be left out.  Staring intently into Jacinta’s eyes, she exclaimed, “Your eyes are … white!”

Then, looking at me, “Your eyes are … white!”

Jacinta asked, “What color are your eyes, Tina?”  “Um … white!”

I suppose it’s a hard concept to grasp:  why we call my eyes blue and Jacinta’s eyes brown when there is so much–well, white in there.
